Wednesday 17th

Make today a different day. Instead of doing the same old thing, be creative and do things to improve your day.

I’ve had a personal encounter with each of the above birds. They have a way of looking at you that is very interesting, they can be looking straight ahead, at least their head is facing forward, but I swear that they are looking right at me. I’ve had many an early morning conversation with one woodpecker or another. I realized today, that I will miss them when I am not spending as much time in the woods. It was an interesting observation. I’ve come to know so many different birds over the last year.. … there is something special about how the woodpecker relates… it doesn’t take flight like other birds do…. when an intruder comes along. Most will take off to a higher place where they can watch and scoop out the situation… The woodpecker, will often just simply move around the tree away from immediate view, and take in the stranger(s) without too much of a fuss. The ones that came regularly when I was around, almost ignored my presence.. they were not concerned by my activities. In fact, there is one at Mer Bleue that makes me wait when I want to refill the feeder till he/she is ready to move. Mais oui, but yes, I wait… he/she was there first! =^_^=

It is mid week everyone…

Breakfast companion
this little guy is smaller, making his way to the suet on the left.

I’m finding great comfort in spending time with the birds. I’ve even got my trunk set up like a cafeteria, every-thing ready for me to access when I get to the feeding areas. Some days it is just too cold to be fiddling with seed bags that are still factory sealed, Or get to the suet blocks that are still in their retail packaging.

I have been eyeing some of the cameras and the special lens attachments that the serious cameramen are toting. So far I’ve only gotten to the stage where I am making enquiries .. and talking to them about their equipment. The reality at the moment is that by the time I get to the feeders, asses what needs to be replaced, fill and relocate feeder trays etc. I’m usually dealing with frozen fingers.

Live radiantly as the sun. Strive to always be bright and cheerful so you can enliven those around you.
